We were lured into this place by a man that was standing there with a menu. We thought we'd give it a shot as we had already walked a lot and were feeling hungry. Instead of ordering pizza or pasta, i thought i'd order some chicken and escape the carbs even just for a meal. The waitress said it would... More

While visiting Rome with my family we loved this restaurant so much we came back 3 times. The pizza dough was perfect which made every pizza we tried amazing. The gnocchi was also especially tasty. Delicious salads and great wine too. The restaurant itself is quite big but feels very cozy and on top of all this the staff is... More

The food was relatively cheap (eur 18 for a pizza and pasta) but it lacked the taste that you usually get in small restaurants in Italy. Plus we were served spaghetti when we told the waiter we don't want spaghetti. He spoke good English, so it was definitely not a language problem.

WOW! I had a meal with a bottle of wine, starter, pasta, main with side, dessert, coffee for 75, I swear I under paid! The meal was fabulous, taste was great, for all dishes. Service, slow, but once he noticed I didn't have olive oil, bread, etc, it turned into top class service. Worth every penny, go inside, the décor... More

After reading so many glowing reviews on TripAdvisor I thought I was on to a sure thing. Prices are ok, not cheap but affordable. Food... I had a goats cheese salad then lasagne which was a bit too greasy but tasted perfectly fine all the same. They have a good choice of wines by the glass 🍷 and I had... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
